The Star – #FridayFotoFiction Fiction Writing

I don’t remember when I started.

Teddies, princesses, hearts weren’t meant for me.

I grew up amidst alcohol, abuse, and divorce.

I don’t know they decided to have me when they were not having a normal life!

I didn’t know for the longest time what normal meant.

I found comfort in music. My songs were my freedom.

Surprisingly success and money came in easy.

Everyone wanted me, none was a friend.

The irony is I looked for solace in him.

I thought he would fill me up with love, which I longed.

But he presented me with this gift when I was sixteen.

It felt good, it eased my pains.

But it also drove me to the grave … well almost.

I’m Hazel Samson- the star for you. I’m telling you Say No to Drugs. I have taken the long walk from being doomed to being healthy. You can too.

#FridayFotoFiction Featured Blogger Nov 17- Nov 22

Last week we had 15 link ups on this prompt. We, had a difficult time picking up featured bloggers because every story was great. So we thought why not pick up three featured bloggers this week!

Our first featured blogger for Nov17-Nov 22 is Lavanya from The Lav Muse. Read her featured post As The Wind Blew. Congratulations Lavanya.

Our second featured blogger for Nov17-Nov 22 is Rashi from Live it Young. She in act posted two entries. We liked her story Cursed or Blessed and that’s the featured story. Also, read her second tale Kay Sera Sera which has a spooky touch. Congratulations Rashi.

Our third featured blogger is Monika from Alu Bhujia. Read her featured post Pratishtha. Congratulations Monika.

We also have a special mention this week for some outstanding tales of inclusiveness. And both happen to be Akshatas! Read We are family by Akshata from Aks Writes and You are Here by Akshata from Opinionated Mua.

    Children are seen as a miracle cure to all problems in marriages. The problems the child would face are ignored. SO well written.

    That was an inspirational story. Glad that she could control her mind and not otherwise.
